This chapter analyses the changing forms of civic engagement in German social care, with a view to identifying major trends and policy issues. It starts by sketching the old forms of civic engagement as they have defined the traditional social service regime. Next, the chapter examines the factors that have contributed to the demise of this regime and to the erosion of the old forms of civic engagement. The third section deals with the spread of new forms of civic engagement and discusses various attempts to encourage voluntary engagement in the field of social care.
